With 12 seasons of truly iconic television under its sequin belt, RuPaul’s Drag Race has no doubt achieved must-see-TV status years ago. With a devoted following, celebrity cameos, and a truly memorable cast, the drag competition show has brought LGBTQ+ and drag culture to the mainstream, all while subverting prejudices and cleaning up those Emmy wins along the way. It also doesn’t hurt the ratings that the show’s host, RuPaul — along with a revolving cast of contestants — is responsible for some of the funniest, saltiest, most unforgettable quotes, one-liners, and comebacks ever uttered on TV.

The lines are memorable, bold, and fierce but thankfully they can also be used in every day life. That’s right, be an icon at the gym, at work, and on the subway with the snap of your fingers, sashay of the hips, and one of these fire lines ready to go.
